Hearthstone [official site] players, it’s time to figure out which one of your pals would be easiest to catch, subdue, slaughter, and devour. That might sound grim, but it always pays to be prepared when adventuring, even if Blizzard probably are thinking more Indiana Jones than Be Your Own Pet with the latest singleplayer ‘Adventure’. They announced The League of Explorers at BlizzCon only a few days ago, and have now started rolling out the add-on to the four corners of Azeroth. Adventure calls!
The League of Explorers sees a band of treasure-hunters and ‘archaeologists’ off to collect the fragments of a staff, which handily are each placed at the end of a series of trials, challenges, and boss battles. Your rewards are, of course, new cards.
The first wing has unlocked now (well, it has for North America – should be open soon for Europe and whatnot) then more will follow weekly, aside from a break for American Thanksgiving on the 26th. As ever, you can unlock individual wings by paying with in-game gold or actual real money, and cash-flingers get it cheaper if they buy the whole dang Adventure in one go.
Hit up the League of Explorers subsite for more info on it all and to check out new cards, and here’s a cinematic trailer to provide some pictures and noises:
